Fan symbols display rotational movement when bound to an object. Use this dynamic component to provide animation capabilities for fans or pumps that appear in the background image. You can choose either a clockwise or a counter-clockwise spin. We recommend using Fans with binary objects.

In View mode, if the bound object has a value of 0, the fan appears stationary. If the bound object has a value greater than 0, the fan/pump blade spins. The fan/pump color shows the state of the bound object (red for Off, green for On).

If the fan is spinning, the bound object has a normal status or is unreliable, and the device that the bound point resides on is online, the color of the fan is set to the color defined in the system preferences for the On state. If the fan is not spinning, the bound object has a normal status or is unreliable, and the device that the bound point resides on is online, the color of the fan is set to the color defined in the system preferences for the Off state. If neither of these scenarios apply, the color of the fan is defined by the status colors defined in the system preferences.

In the View mode, a double click on a fan symbol displays the Focus view of the bound object. A right-click shows the command dialog box.

See the Dynamics: Fans step section for information on binding Fans.
